We thought she was too classy for this!

It seems 24 star Cherry Jones is pulling a Katherine Heigl. The respected actress has withdrawn herself from consideration for an Emmy nomination for her role as U.S. President Allison Taylor on the hit Fox show.

Cherry took home Best Supporting Actress in a Drama last year, but took herself out the running because she was not happy with her storyline this season.

She said the following to EW in May:

"By the end of the season, these guys (producers) are just this side of brain dead. They have been trying so hard. They don't have an arc. Most TV shows would have an arc and they would figure out how to nudge everybody in the direction they wanted to go… (The producers) try to follow things they think will be the most shocking."

Yikes!

    thank god someone has some integrity left!



  2. 2

    She made a wise decision!

    she's right, and I'm glad she has the courage to speak up! what a lady!
    perez, you're just a twat who wants to kiss ass! shit is you always chose the wrong people to suck.



  4. 4

    considering that she is the one who had to submitt her name in the first place it's kinda phony that she is now withdrawing it.



  5. 5

    She is right and it seriously showed in the quality of 24 for the last two years

    How is her dropping her name from an award she doesn't think she deserves not classy? In fact sorry Perez that is the very definition of being a class act. If her story line and therefore her character sucked and she's smart and brave enough to say so and allow people that really deserve the award to be nominated for it then I think that's extremely classy.

    Perez maybe you need to rethink your stance on this everything about this screams classy and everything about you insulting it screams that you just expect her to be a famewhore and sell her soul… Kind of makes you the unclassy person here… No offense or anything typically I love you but this is pretty bad of you.

    these comments defend her but did any of U HYPOCRITES defend KATHERINE HEIGAL 2 yrs ago??????



  9. 9

    She's not withdrawing so much as not entering. SHE didn't enter last year, her agents did it for her. She asked them not to do so this year.

    Everyone in town looking for an acting job and this smuck gets one, wins an Emmy because of the producers/writers and now she's putting them down. she should never work again.
